“For I know that my Redeemer lives…” Job 19:25 CBS

Our founder Christine Abraham restored her relationship with God through Bible study. Working full-time and raising two daughters, she found it challenging to attend local small groups. Christine observed her friends were missing small group connections because they had to work, attend doctor appointments, or take care of family members at home.

She craved a connection with like-minded Christians and in 2009 asked a wild question via Twitter: “Would anyone want to study the Bible with me online? I can afford 14 books and if you are interested, let’s start an online study.”

We started the first online Bible study and with love and grace- our Womens Bible Cafe™ grew into a movement that many would follow!

Today we are an international ministry with a Volunteer Team led by women. We host online small groups and each small group experience lasts about one hour. Bring your coffee, tea, or favorite cafe beverage and discuss the Bible with women worldwide.

With many meeting times, you’ll select the day and time that fits your schedule. Better yet, if you miss your regular group- due to work, travel, or a doctor’s appointment perhaps- then you can join another group for the week. Our groups never close so you have the flexibility to attend at your convenience.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE US…

We are educational like a university, informational like a library, and social like a coffeehouse. Come join us!
